ᛏᛣᚱ (sometimes written as Týr) is a band from Faroe Islands. Their music can be described as ///. They incorporate many elements and melodies in their songs.

Their songs include many rhythm changes and complex time signatures instead of playing easier, linear melodies.

    How annoying. About half of their songs are redirecting here, but not all. I agree that ᛏᛣᚱ is the proper display (though I can't see it on Vista), but having my plays split between this and Týr is just a pain... They really ought to merge the two, make it one or the other.

    oh and uzi, classic linux user I have to say. classic snobbish linux user there. you can always tell people people say linux, as opposed to their distro. if they said ubuntu, or suse, or (heaven forbid) gentoo, then they just wouldn't sound as nerdy and awkward, would they.

    Hmm, is it possible to display the runes in the default font of Vista? Installing JUnicode doesn't work. Maybe... appending JUnicode to the default Vista font or something..?

    so uzi we actualy agree, they use Týr for simpler use on the web and so people can understand it, i use ᛏᛣᚱ caus i understand it and tinks its the "right" way. what should do is just combine it so that both versions went into the same profile. And my english might have bad spelling sometimes but I dont write or speak english normaly cause Im Norwegian. Sorry for not posting the runic explanation before but its was kind of hectic when I wrote the last time:P Btw many asian bands is actualy scrobled with theyr alphabet in here even if you wite their name in latin letters.
